NUI Galway Content Management System
Version 3.0

Change Log:

December 2nd, 2007 - v.3.0

Version 3.0 introduces new features and improves existing ones while also addressing all of the problems / bugs that were reported to Web Services over the last few months. This update adds some industry-standard Web CMS features (e.g. versioning) and improves the system's speed and ease of use.

FEATURES ADDED: BUG FIXES: The following bugs have been resolved:

October 3rd, 2006 - v.2.02

This minor update fixes problems / annoyances that came to light as more users began to use the CMS with the new look and feel.
FEATURE ADDED: Extra XHTML rules added to avoid accidental 'breaking' of XHTML validation rules by the user.*
BUG FIX: The problem where adding a blank line to the footer caused the entire footer to be left justified has been resolved.*
BUG FIX: Pressing the save button while in HTML view did not save the changes in the Firefox browser.*
BUG FIX: Email addresses pasted into the CMS from other Web sites were not saving properly.*
BUG FIX: Links to anchors (i.e. links with a '#' in them) in the side navigation bar were not fully editable after they were added.*
BUG FIX: Improved support for apostrophes in the side navigation bar.*



June 13th, 2006 - v.2.01

This extraordinary update was made because of a limitation on the Web server which affected the CMS's ability to save shared files. The entire saving mechanism was adjusted to counteract this limitation. Most changes only affect users using the new NUI Galway look and feel.
FEATURE ADDED: Clear progress indicators when creating, deleting, un-deleting, or publishing* files/directories.
FEATURE MODIFIED: Timed publication of pages to your Web site after saving.*
Note: Publication can take up to 60 seconds. Some features in the CMS will be automatically suppressed while waiting for the page to be published.
